Warringah Aquatic Centre

Location: Sydney, Australia

TIA was commissioned by Liquid Blu to produce a detailed feasibility study to refurbish an existing pool facility with the addition of a new leisure & community building to create one large leisure / aquatic centre for the public. We achieve visual harmony by expressing the concrete lids of the new building in similar forms of half-hexagonal exposed concrete soffit elements of the existing one and large volumes & airiness of both buildings.

Green Square Aquatic Centre

Location: Sydney, Australia

The regeneration of disused public space is essential in developing new opportunities for social exchange, well-being, and community engagement. Our design exists as a series of connected platforms reinforcing the site history and our connection to the landscape. The inner city bock pattern creates sizeable elevated parkland over a series of open and enclosed volumes below. The facilities address the community-wide need for recreational facilities suitable for all ages, genders, and physical abilities. In recognition of the design briefs 'Green' vision, we have conceived this proposal as one extensive multi-level parkland. The design employs leading sustainable techniques in green roof technology, which encourages rainwater harvesting, helps insulate the building's interior, and promotes new flora and fauna habitats.
